Máximo Gómez Park (Domino Park) in Little Havana located on historic Calle Ocho (8th Street) where the locals come to play dominoes and/or chess for generations.

For visitors, it is a cool place to come watch the locals play dominos. The style of play is Cuban, and they use a double nine set. There is no cost in visiting the park, but don't be surprised if there is some friendly wagering at the tables.

Visitors won't be able to play, but you're welcome to take some pictures out front, watch people play, and enjoy the culture a bit. Outside the gates there are some bricks on the ground decorated like dominos, which make for good photos.

FACT: Domino Park played a cameo appearance in the 2022 movie, Father of the Bride, with Andy Garcia and Gloria Estefan

My wife and I stopped off in Domino Park in  Little Havana as part of a larger tour of the amazing city of Miami. Dozens of locals were frantically engaged in games of Dominos all across a relatively compact area. It was truly fascinating to watch and fantastic to take in the all encompassing Latin vibe.

You know in the movies when they want to establish a setting, like the Eiffel Tower or Big Ben? This park would do well to establish Little Havana. When we visited the park was packed with elderly Cuban playing dominoes. The sounds of the dominoes clicking and the chatter of the conversation would make a perfect establishing shot. A fun place to visit, but unless you are into dominos, not someplace that is absolutely necessary to visit.

This was on my list of attractions to see, however I think due to the time of day it was closed already.

So it's not really a park per se but it is a nice little enclave that I think would be much more relaxed than the bustling rest of Calle Ocho.

There are tables inside where people can sit and play the game.

It is a nice little gated area on one side, and the other side is completely open.

It is definitely Domino-themed with Dominoes painted everywhere.

Nice area, and a wonderful theme to get you on a little slower pace.

The picture of the gates to the park shows the actual size of the park. We were so underwhelmed! Why call it a park? Totally not what I expected.

Domino Park was created by the cubans in Little Havana because of their love for DOMINOES...They play daily from sunrise to sunset...they are loud and kings in trash talk. Great place!

Thought this was so cool. Groups of men sitting in the park playing dominos. How fun would that be! They didn’t seem to be taking it too seriously. Lots of laughs.

Almost every visitor to Miami will come to see Little Havana and famous Calle Ocho. Although imo this is a tourist trap, where everything's money oriented and nothing authentic, this small park in the middle of Calle 8 differs from that.
It's a cute covered area with several tables where locals gather to play domino and chess. They're pretty loud, arguing about the game, making jokes and friendly with visitors.
